Sessions are for helping you feel like you again.
Each session is very individual, it's what you need it to be - in order to bring you into your strong, well, empowered self - in a clearer, brighter, lighter space.
Bringing you back to life… and to love.
It's about resetting the body to harmonious balance. A session lifts heaviness, removing that 'stuck' feeling and instilling confidence in your abilities to create a great life.
There is guidance within the session, (you can ask specifically for a reading) and sometimes there is a little homework too.
Depending on the length of time we have, sessions may include these things and the possibilities can be huge…
I work in a high trust environment, so this is a positive and proactive space for you to 'get things off your chest' without judgement, an open space for perfect release and renewal.
I see inside the body and work with universal energy, colour, sound, intention and holograms to facilitate this life change. I'm a Reiki Master/Teacher, a Colour Therapist, an Elohim Practitioner and have also been gifted other healing abilities through life experience.
The pace your body is able to process and integrate all this work dictates how much we achieve. If you are really, really ready - your body works like a thirsty sponge.
A Reiki session is a great follow up to this procedure.
The ideal way to approach your session is with the mindset that you are really ready to move forward - and when you've got that, the rest of it flows quite organically. Before you come, you may like to create a mental list of the things you'd like to 'let go of'.
Notes and recommendations are often supplied from the sessions.
Sessions work alongside allopathic medicine.
Some testimonials for my work are here.
Are you ready?
Life is for living, loving, laughing and leaping over hurdles.
Sure you have to work…
but what is the work all about if jumping for joy is not on your to-do list?
Your Homework choices are:
1. You - tomorrow - 10 star jumps (or jumping jacks) - in the doorway - at work or at home - facing the world.
2. Make a tin can telephone with string and talk to a friend.
3. Make silly faces at kids on the bus.
4. Make mud pies.
5. Paint with your hands.
6. Investigate glitter or glue for no real reason at all. Stick something to something else.
7. Ring someone up and tell them you love them.
8. Roll down a grassy hill.
9. Go fly a kite.
10. Write "I love you" in lipstick on your mirror.
11. See if you can kiss your elbow.
12. Make up a funny character for a children's book.
13. Take your inner child out for a swing.
14. Make your food into faces before you eat it.
15. Press all the buttons on the thingummies that make music in a FRIENDLY toy shop.
*If anyone says you are silly for doing it, tell them it was part of your Play Therapy Prescription from Doctor Deb.
**Do NOT taste the strawberry scented soap - it doesn't taste like strawberries - I have already done this experiment for you. (Ok - ever hopeful, I did do it twice just in case I was wrong the first time)
(I just tried to kiss my elbow.)
Hanging on to something that happened a long time ago can consciously or even unconsciously happen. Tough life experiences and attitudes (negative thoughts about ourselves or others) can colour everything that comes after them if we let them.
When you go into a place of peace around those things - you feel physically lighter - a lighter spirit really does help you to feel like you have a lighter body. And not only that, but it seems to make things flow better around you.
Taking the time to do it, and making the commitment to you is key.
That 'baggage' that sometimes impacts our lives so much, can be moved. How many times have you heard a friend who is dating say 'great lady - too much baggage?' or 'nice guy - just can't let his wife go'? The things we hold definitely impact our relationships with others.
Why are we carrying it around?
The weight can be disappointment/resentment (sometimes creating arthritis) it can be disillusionment and often, people feel stupid for trusting and then having their hearts broken, and sometimes we don't know we are carrying it, but we continue to attract similar experiences because it's on our minds, or in our fields.
I can tell you this for free… I almost missed out on my lovely husband because the men in my past were still haunting me. I was still holding them - as proof that the world was full of terrible men (I had hardly any other proof) and I had to make a concerted effort to release them and face him without my fears and judgements.
When I faced him, without that energy on board, I was not only free - I WAS SO EXCITED.
And all he had done was ask me out for dinner. Most decent men would have no clue at all that such a lovely thing to do for a woman could be so terrifying, but it was. I had literally broken out into a cold sweat on the day I was meant to be going out with him.
Gee am I glad I sorted it!!
So… it's great to do a bit of a body/spirit check from time to time and see if there is anything we are letting get 'under our skin' (rashes, shingles) or anywhere we are scared to move forward (feet or ankle strains) repeated stories we tell ourselves of bad experiences, or any parts of our lives that we just feel heavy/stuck in.
You'll know if it's preventing you from moving forward, or just keeping you in a holding pattern. Check it out - even the heaviest burdens can be lifted.
What would you like to be free for?
Marianne Williamson says 'We will inhabit the world we wish to see and that is why we must never lose sight of love.'
But what is love? Love is only what it means to us. Everything on earth means what it means to us personally. It has as much importance or as little importance as we attach to it.
It's all around us, yet - we sometimes need to tweak our eyes a little, tune ourselves to perceive a little, if we want to increase our spiritual vision.
We already have a network of symbols. Hearts are love. Clouds herald rain, rainbows mean the sun is coming. Wool to me, means warmth and comfort, wool to a sheep farmer might mean hard work and profit. Dogs are loyalty - unless they are snarling - then they mean keep out.
Consider some of the symbols you have and already use daily.
Each persons symbols come from their own life experiences, so they all have subtle differences - and there is more than one way to look at the signs, symbols and messages that are everywhere - so really - it's about getting clear to look. Putting ourselves in a space of grace first, so we can simply receive, instead of pushing and thrashing to get some kind of outcome.
A fearful space brings a fear of the signs that come, and a loving space brings a better experience.
Sit in a quiet space. And if the only quiet space you have is in the bathroom - go for it - it's a great start.
Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
You do not have to get a result in this exercise.
Simply say to yourself (internally) "I am willing to see." And imagine you have parcelled that up, in an envelope with a stamp on it - and you've sent it in some kind of imaginary Angel Powered Post Box.
That's it. Let it go.
Admit to yourself that you need help. And then tell your Higher Self, your Angels, God or Nana, you are ready for that help.
As simply as this "Angels, I am willing to accept the help you send me."
Take any steps that you feel guided, pressed upon, compelled to take. Carefully listen to hunches. Notice recurring thoughts, and instead of pushing them away, ask yourself - is this for my higher good?
Discern whether you have been disregarding them due to fear, and if so - does that fear hold a key to healing for you? Write the thoughts down and take appropriate action.
The action process is an instigation.
The allowing process is an invitation.
The active listening process is a validation.
Love, faith, some devotion, constructive action, and dedicating yourself to service are all a part of welcoming miracles.
So while you are sitting, after you have completed this process, place both hands on your heart and just warm it with love. Once you start to feel a fullness, send any excess out to your home, your family, pets and friends.
As an ongoing process, intend to receive 3 big signs on a journey - perhaps the journey to work.
I asked for a song (to confirm I was doing the right thing) while I was on my way to my Reiki 1 Learner Healers course, and at the top of the Reiki Teachers driveway - that song played on my car radio.
It blew me away. And underlined my day, my Reiki, my Teacher and my spiritual way of life was very important.
So what song will you ask for?
And would you please let me know if you have a little story about it?
Done the exercises, but need to clear some muck out of your spiritual eyes?

When I learned Reiki I was really scared. Scared I wouldn't be able to remember, scared I wouldn't be able to do it. But what happened when I stepped out of my comfort zone, was simply amazing.
After my Level 1 Reiki Class I came home, feeling a little light headed and excited, and wondering if I could 'really do it'. I slept soooo well and was looking forward to using Reiki.
I had homework, to practice Reiki on myself for 21 days - I had two young sons and was excited to use it for them too.
I was on my own, doing the lions share of parenting, and any way I could help make that easier was welcome - a well family saves stress, time and discomfort, time off work and money too. Good for me and great for my boys? Bring it on!
Unexpectedly, my chance came the following morning.
As is often the way, the boys shared a bunk bed. My older son woke up very early the following morning and uttered the words no mother wants to hear "BLEEEEAAARGH I'm gonna be SICK" As he hopped out of bed I leapt up on 'autopilot damage control mode' praying for him to avoid vomiting on the carpet... and then the weirdest thing happened.
He ran around the corner and into the bathroom, and leaned over the toilet making a huge heave noise. I was right behind him and put my hands on his back, saying "Don't be sick, don't be sick, don't be sick."
He gave another sort of half heave, breathed in and said.. "Oh, wow, that's weird. I don't feel sick anymore, in fact..... gee that's really weird." And standing up, he looked at me and then said "I'm a bit hungry. I think I will go and eat breakfast."
I watched in stunned amazement as he left the bathroom and went to the dining table. (It was CocoPops, if you're wondering.)
I was standing there wondering what happened (I was sleeping when all this started, so hadn't really got all my faculties in order) and then I realised my Reiki had switched on automatically as my hands were so hot - they felt like they were almost glowing.
My son went off to school right as rain. Amazing.
Reiki has helped my family many times since and as I became a Reiki Master/Teacher, I have been priveleged to share it with countless people.
It has definitely changed my life for the better and brought me many amazing experiences on my journey. The simplest and most graceful form of healing, anyone can learn it, as you are attuned by the Master.
My fear when I went along, was due to what I thought was a bad memory (and truckloads of low self confidence), but I was so reassured, and then I came to understand, that Reiki is a process that you learn by doing.
It's an ongoing major blessing in my life, and can be the same for you.
I'm teaching on Saturday August 9th, from 10am till 4:30pm in Mairangi Bay.
I started the day with Drew Dudley. Which sounds weird, but it brought on a day of miracles. And I'm ending it with this...
We are not here to be harsh on each other. I believe we are here to learn as much as possible about each other. To tell stories and keep our humanity alive. To love people that we don't even know. To share kindness and realise, recognise the miracles that surround us every day.
I believe we are here to stand up for what resonates with us. And to give each other grace, encouragement and a safe, peaceful place to rest.
We don't all get it right all the time - but what is right? What is wrong? What is perfect? Who are we to say? And who are we to judge.
What's right for me might not be right for you.
I know that I wish each and every one of you well.
And that while I have a conscious breath in my body I will continue to do so in the hope that my loves reaches around the world and has a positive effect every day.
One of my first miracles today was Drew - tweeting me and telling me he liked my phrase 'biffing people out of my ballpark' and that he is going to use it in his leadership programs that he runs in Canada.
He is an incredible speaker and educator on leadership, as well as a dedicated humanitarian.
I am super chuffed that my words will go to people on the other side of the world. Even more fabulous is that they are strong words, designed to create inner strength, through standing up for something you personally resonate with.
I am ok with biffing people out of my ball park. And so, I hope are you. We don't have to be perfect, but life is easier if we resonate with the people around us. We have a choice to do so, in fact, for most of us, it's our right. Challenges are good too, but there are ways to make sure they are in line with necessary growth. Banging your head against a brick wall, doesn't make it less brick, it only brings concussion.
Sometimes you need to find (or even create) a door.
Anyway. Sometimes it's just about loving yourself.
I am rounding out the night with this beautiful song: Love is easy.
Apart from anything else - it's our wedding song, so totally perfect for everyone.
Dance. Sing. EnJOY.
But most of all, love.
You're beautiful. *Don't argue with me about this tonight. I have my ranty pants on.
I have just spent the morning watching a BBC Doco entitled 'Don't Grow Old.'
I loved it. It presented the work of several scientists, I agreed with some and not with others, but they all showed me some really important things.
Most important was that a strong attitude created a strong life and there was a snippet on Dr Ellen Langer's study from 1979 where she put several 'elderly' men back in time, in a house that was set in 1959, furnished with all the appropriate 1959 props - even newspapers, and caring for themselves. Some of them had current caregivers that they were not allowed to take with them into the test. It was just for a week, but at the end of the week, the results were really rather amazing.
For a couple of days, predictably, they grumbled a bit, but they had to look after themselves, so they did.
Tenacity is a great healer. The results showed some put on weight. Their brains worked better, they tested as moving faster, standing taller, and one threw away his walking stick. In 1979, these people lived as though they were 20 years younger and they became more well as a result.
My opinion. The energy of ageing was negated by introducing the energy of tenacity and youth.
If you have to do it you will.
Will is very, very important and very very underrated, not to mention widely misused.
You can learn how to use yours to bring wellness, feel younger, feel fitter, there are many ways in which people have used their will to beat the odds.
Those layers of life that make you feel less than great can be shifted.
What are you using your will for?

In many cases ONE Energy Healing session can release ALL your pain.
can cut the distance between You and Your Healing into minutes.
Pain, stiffness and tension are all energy blockages - even pain due to injuries - and energy healing clears this.
Why do I think energy healing is great?
These are results...
and... helping plants grow. (You should see the size of my jade plant leaves!)
So what else is possible? All these things have happened for my clients, their testimonials are here.
I was a sceptic who regularly took Panadol and other painkillers for a chronic sore back. I had phantom pains, a broken heart, felt depressed and had low self esteem. I recovered from a prolonged series of traumatic life events that brought both extreme pain and around 30 years of fear. I still am partly sceptic and that's why I love to see and hear results.
Every day, people are helped by this work.
It works over the phone, via Skype, anywhere in the world.
Some people are helped in ways they never dreamed possible.
Are you ready to believe that you can let go of pain?
Do not complain about your life until you investigate the ideas you have.
Make sure your ideas serve your wellness - if they do not - THROW THEM OUT. Get new ideas or leave room for the birth of inspiration.
Bitterness will never make you better, or better than anyone else. Avoid toxic conversations and situations.
Understand that when two people are angry and you don't like it - you are the one who needs to do something about it. More anger feeds the war, put your weapons down. And leave the battleground.
The idea that someone has wronged you is sort of spiritually flawed because every step of your journey has been your teacher, if you did not learn from it - it's guaranteed you have another lesson coming.
Learn fast - requiring the same lesson over and over is not bad luck.
Know that if 'love' requires selling yourSelf short - it's not love - and do something about it.
Be a friend to yourSelf. If you have no friends and you don't like yourSelf either - you know where to start.
Embrace every day as a delivery vessel for new possibilities.
Recognise and honour your values and your virtues.
Dream a dream and take some steps towards it.
Be just a little braver than you think you can be.
Feed your inner child as often as possible.
Light a candle for yourSelf every day. (or when you remember)
Find something to be thankful for.
Do something for somebody else.
Make praise one of your hobbies.
Speak your truth.
If you love someone - tell them - a moment of such courage could change your life forever.
If someone doesn't love you - move on. The person who will love you is
waiting. Taking the ghost of your old partner into your new relationship is one
of those ideas you need to examine.
Remember you have a purpose on this planet.
Know that miracles already surround you.
See the beauty in small things.
Heal yourSelf in nature. At least go for a walk, hug a tree, swim in the sea or lay on the grass.
Share your stories of hope and love.
Act on your hunches.
Smell the roses.
Paint with your hands.
Meditate and rest when you need to. (you need to often)
Love wildly, passionately, deeply, gently, loyally and often.
Give your smiles away.
Surrender everything you can do nothing about. And surrender all your pain and all your (perceived) unhealed relationships.
Find out who you are. Do that NOW. Your joyfulness heals the planet. If you don't know how to start finding your joy - observe puppies and small children playing with water.
Get over yourSelf.
Give with grace.
Receive with grace.
Be pleased to know the end of the world is not today.
You have both less time and more time than you think. So hurry up and... slow down.
Eat honey. If 2000 year old honey is still edible and if 'you are what you eat' is really true, then honey IS the bees knees.
You are each and every one of you a gift filled with gifts. Treasuring yourSelf will help you to honour your gifts.
Drink more water.

I'm wishing YOU a miraculous day!
Here is a little dabble with 'what we put up with' from negative people.
If people don't like you or if you have
a consistent experience that feels sharp, pointy or draining with a friend
- I give you permission – in case you are not - o relieve yourSelf temporarily of your good manners (just put them to one side) and take a
good hard look at a couple of things:
A. Why your 'friend' (and we could insert family member or partner here too)
feels the need to download on you or bring you down.
B. Why you are allowing it to happen.
Because here is what I have learned...
Someone once labelled me a 'people pleaser' and I felt it was a very negative
judgement. I worried about what was wrong with me and after I investigated myself, I realised the lady who called me that, was a negative person and was challenged by the fact that I liked people and people liked me.
She was a grumpy lady. Not to everyone. To me. All I was doing was making her a cup of tea - I wasn't deliberately trying to 'please' her. And nothing I did was going to please her - she wasn't WIRED for it.
Ejecting her from my field eased life immensely. I continued to do nice things for people - I am here to share kindness - and eventually realised that she had given me a gift.
My boundaries weren't strong enough and I was an over-giver.
Giving to a person whose hobbies include ungrateful fault finding is not necessarily helping them or you. I had the right to be who I was and she had the right to be who she was. If she wanted to be different or happy, that was her responsibility - not mine.
If she could label me - I would not label her, but I could certainly define her role in my life. Name calling isn’t nice, but definition gives you a platform to work from.
It was a relief for me to let her own her own grouchiness.
And I could step back from it. Maybe she might learn from it too, maybe not, but - and this is crucial here - her learning was not my responsibility or any of my business.
Neither was helping her and so stepping back without being unpleasant, was best for me.
In ejecting her from my field I had exercised my right to be selective over the
good manners I had, good manners which were causing me to believe that I should stick around while she was being awful. These were simply my programming and beliefs disempowering me.
Once I stood up and internally said “Hey Honey – that’s not my stuff” I discovered my
internal compass worked better. Another gift. The unpleasantness ceased to flow over me. See how this works?
And now, I can say thank you for her gift. It helped me discover a stronger part of me.
Are you doing your ‘duty’ sticking around with a consistently negative person, and blaming yourself, when you could just let them own it, deal with it – (or not) and be free to be yourself?
Or are you raining on someone else’s parade because of your own pain? Can you stop and investigate what your real issue is? There might be a good opportunity for growth in it.
Are you no longer a match for the friends around you?
People do leave your life. Sometimes letting go or stepping back necessary, but painful, - it doesn’t mean you don’t love them, it just means it’s time for you to broaden horizons and have different experiences.
Don’t cling, there is always a gift in letting go - it opens your arms to receive more.
And as you know when one door closes another door opens and it's true what they say "what other people think of me is none of my business."
If you are having trouble letting go or wanting to grow stronger boundaries in a painful space - I work with that. Email me for more info via the button below.
